Day Three of Wimbledon means the start of the second round and more opportunities to make some changes and boost your Fantasy Wimbledon points total.
If you missed the first two days, don’t worry, you still have plenty of time to make up the ground in the overall standings, while you can also win the weekly prizes and still set up your own mini-league or join a friend’s existing league.
If you’re looking to make changes, you might need to find a bargain and taking a look at Wednesday’s play, there could be some value down the list, with Varvara Lepchenko a good price at 100 in the net play category.
The American is aggressive, likes to finish points at the net and in round one, she scored 32 points thanks to winning 18 of 22 points. That’s a good record for anyone, but especially for someone valued at 100, who won’t bust your budget.
Casey Dellacqua is another who might be worth getting, this time in the serve category. The Aussie is playing the tennis of her life and her serve is the key to her game. In round one, she banged down 11 aces and even though she has a tough draw against Agnieszka Radwanska, she could produce more points, also at 100.
Marin Cilic might be another option in the serve department. The Croat hammered 27 aces and just three double faults in round one, which yielded 72 points. At 300, you don’t have to go into the top price band to add him to your line-up.
Finally, Marcos Bahgdatis is a man who loves to hit winners and could be worth a gamble in the “power” category. The Cypriot scored 63 points in that category in round one and against Leonardo Mayer, he might be able to even top that. He’s on offer at 300.
20:08It brings me no pleasure but it's time to bring the curtain down for another year. Seemed somehow appropriate to leave the last word to Roger Federer. Thanks a billion for reading. What a fortnight, what a final, fast forward to 2015 please...
